Job interview and application feedback:
“We chose someone with more (insert x experience, x track record and x personality)… but you were a really strong candidate!”
“So, outside of writing and media… what other experience have you got? Hobbies?”
“You probably wouldn’t want this admin role, would you, after SUCH amazing roles you’ve done before…!”
OH, AND THIS
“Well, you don’t really have the requisite experience… a lot of your work so far has been part-time, short-term, etc.”
Stuck in the middle. Not experienced enough to do similar roles I was doing before, but too much experience in impressive and cool and intelligent roles to fit in to anything else. It’s a tough road ahead, and there’s no easy way out.
